Welcome Potterheads…

Everybody get your wands and book a place on the Knight Bus because Ireland's very own Wizard convention is coming. A chance for Wizarding fans to come together and share their love of the characters, books, movies and stories, in an immersive, intimate, fan-focused convention.

Fans of any age are welcome to attend Wizard Con but, just as Harry had to be 11 to attend Hogwarts, the recommended age for attendees is 11 years of age. Some of the programming may not be suitable for attendees under the age of 11. Please have a look at the event schedule to judge age appropriate activities before purchasing tickets.
